In 23 days in Peru, eating 3 meals per day, this stands out as one of the three best meals, and the most sublime dining experience in country....(beating a lot of the Lima well hyped options...) The dining room is small, and exquisite... At dinner time, the sparkling garden lights, picture windows and candle light provide most of atmosphere... (If... More

Excellent food with excellent presentation. The adobo de cerdo was stupendous and so were the merengues for dessert. One of the best of Peru and expensive too. But there is a very big issue with this restaurant. As soon as we were received and seated in our table, the waiter asks us if we have been in the restaurant before.... More

This really is one of the best meals I have ever had. The restaurant is beautifully situated in a courtyard in a museum. The service was fantastic, the menu was interesting and every course delicious. As others have said, don't be put off by the 'cafe' in the name - this really is a fine dining restaurant. I recommend the... More

This is a terrific restaurant and very popular. It is in a prix fixe format, including kids. So make sure they are hungry and flexible. In terms of preparation, it reminded us of a good San Francisco or New York restaurant. Setting is nice, in a glass room inside the Museum of Pre-columbian art -- itself worth a visit.

We were so looking forward to this highly recommended restaurant. We were hugely disappointed. The Osso Bucco was tough and fibrous, the lamb described as tender was dry very over cooked, we chose starters from Gazpacho which fell short of the description and ravioli which was tough and frankly tasteless. Over rated there are many better places

This restaurant is located in the courtyard of the MAP museum, a beautiful setting. Great atmosphere. Delicious and creative fusion cuisine. Great service; Yuri, our waiter, was very helpful. It's a little pricey, but you won't be disappointed. And of course you should visit the museum before or after dinner. Este restaurant esta situado en el patio del museo MAP... More

I enjoy going to restaurants and seeing the creative dishes they offer. This restaurant shows innovation. Try the quinua canelloni. Great fusion of andean and italian. Desserts are outstanding. You may like to share and order a few of them so you may have a taste. Prices are high in comparison to other Cuzco restaurants but it is worth it.... More

Had wondered the value when I read some of the comments below but for our lunch, the food was wonderful with such beautiful presentation of colours. Thoroughly enjoyable location in the courtyard of the museum. Service couldn't be more helpful. Excellent in every way.

This was an impeccable setting (courtyard of a stunning museum) with impeccable service and food. We sat under a white tent on a hot, hot day and were fed and watered like royalty. Foie gras may be politically incorrect in some circles, but the dish I had using FG was delectable, and the portion size would make chefs in our... More
